| TEMPE - Fliers, let go of the pretzels and peanuts. |
In what could be the ultimate cost-cutting move by airlines buffeted by sky-high fuel prices, US Airways Group says it will eliminate free snacks in coach class on all its domestic flights starting June 1.
US Airways also says it has matched last week's fare hikes by United Airlines, AMR Corp.'s American Airlines and Delta Air Lines Inc. The increases are from $10 to $60 per round trip and vary based on the length of the flight.
US Airways spokesman Morgan Durrant says the move to cut free snacks was needed to save money in a time of extremely high fuel costs. The airline is still providing complimentary soft drinks.
The price of jet fuel has soared this year as crude oil prices head into uncharted territory in the $130 per barrel range.

Someone recently sent me a skit (I think it was from SNL) that parodied airlines charging for everything now & this just reminds me of it. Like soon there will be a coin slot for the air conditioning vent above you......$1.00 for every 1/2 hour.
